 Broken Harbor

by Tana French

"Across huge swaths of Ireland's countryside, an astonishing housing bubble devoured acre after acre, transforming storied fields into charmless subdivisions .... Four years after the 2008 global crash, as many as 200,000 of those new homes are vacant, according to census figures." -- From a McClatchy-Tribune News Service article in the June 9, 2012 Plain Dealer

"In a ghost subdivision filled with hundreds of these vacant homes, Irish author Tana French sets her heartbreaking new mystery, Broken Harbor. This fourth book in her series finds the Dublin Murder Squad investigating a triple homicide. It also tells of the brutal end of the Celtic Tiger boom, and of the wrenching toll of financial collapse on everyday families. Subtract the accents and the Irish Sea, and the setting could be anytown America." -- Laura DeMarco, Cleveland Plain Dealer
